NBC Universal and Amazon have come to an agreement to sell the company’s TV shows through Amazon’s Unbox service. This comes after NBC announced on Friday that it was dropping iTunes at the end of the calendar year, in which a few hours later, Apple announced it wasn’t carrying any of the network’s fall shows.
Pricing for the episodes of popular NBC shows including The Office, Heroes, and new shows Bionic Woman and Chuck, will cost $1.99 an episode – the same price iTunes offered for its downloads of NBC fare. Season passes will also be available. There were reports that NBC wanted Apple to sell episodes for $4.99 each.
Unbox will also offer fare from NBC’s cable networks including Battlestar Galcatica and Monk.
